We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I have been mulling over the notion of doing a post on ineffectiveness in people, but every time I thought about it, the subject just got too big to tackle. There are so many ways to be ineffective in life, ways of not addressing reality - and oneself - firmly.
So apropos. Just heard from the caterer. Gave the caterer over a month to fill a simple order. And now find out he cannot deliver. I guess it could have been worse, he could have called me the day I needed it and told me that. As it is, I now have 5 days to scramble and find another shop than can fill the order. Wonderful. Just. Simply. Wonderful.
